Source 3E is an extract from an official record of Suffragettes placed in Scottish prisons. Look for the entry for Edith Johnstone.

Study the images and answer the following questions.


1. What other names was she known by? Can you suggest a reason she had so many names?

2. How many times did she go on hunger strike? Was she ever force fed and, if so, for how long?

3. Why was she released in October 1913?

4. Is Source 3E reliable as evidence of the treatment of Suffragettes in Scottish prisons before 1914?
